Edgy Volvo Videos Continue

This one you should see. Go to Look Who’s Driving – 4 year old Sophie at YouTube. As Transport Topics says, mayhem ensues.

The premise: Take a remote-guided 8x4 dump truck and let a 4-year-old drive it with a remote control and see what happens. 

What happens is the truck wades through a lake, rolls down a levee and finally drives through a building, all proving that the Volvo is an all-but-indestructible truck.

Almost as ridiculous are the disclaimers at the end. They missed ‘do not try this at home’ but the others are equally fatuous.

It’s a bit of fun and it does illustrate the toughness and integrity of the latest generation of cabover Volvo trucks. But it argues strongly for NOT letting 4-year-olds drive trucks – remotely or otherwise.
